Brian Durbin owned a Caribbean resort before taking the chef's job at the Innkeeper, a restaurant that celebrates a seamier vision of seafaring than most tropical getaways promote. The dusky room evokes a pirate's haven, and Durbin's best small plates taste very much like buccaneer comfort food. If wayward pirates found an old island wench willing to feed them, she might very well have produced a bowl of something like Durbin's terrific, insides-warming chicken thighs, roasted and tossed with starchy plantains, slow-cooked rice, pigeon peas, and a full head of roasted garlic.
